Cheers Bigfella...

I cant see where the wire goes...ill have to look at the book a little & see how easy it is to get to where it connects to the switch...
Fingers crossed its not the coil--just utterly stupid high price for them through a dealer... :crazy:

I tried a quick clean & reset of the coil already...obviously no luck... :thumbsdown:

Hopefully Ill get time to try do it tomorrow...

Coils on these types of machines are very reliable. But the connections get a hard life, dirty and often wet. Use your manual to check every connection and hopefully your spark will return.

I am in the same boat at the moment. My .17 Rem rifle project has not been touched in a month, and I have other stuff to after the first job that has prevented me doing it! Poo.

I forgot to mention - the best thing to clean parts such as on your TS is aerosol brake and parts cleaner. High pressure cleaner leaves no residue. Do not use carby cleaner except on steel fuel system parts - it will melt some plastics. Brake cleaner is great to blast stuff clean before removal and during assembly.

If it is the coil look for a aftermarket one for it, try the carby doctor or have a look on ebay for one, they should be available I would think (that's where my mates buys most of his from for repairing chainsaws, whipersnippers and anything else that needs a coil or carby or anything for that matter, he doesn't bother with genuine because they are way over priced. :thumbsup:

google the part number of the coil, chance are a few things share it.
2stroke coils are pretty dam simple... they arent going to make 10,000 different types.
chance are youll find something... its only a bloody coil! saying that they dont break much....

A yeah they do actually, quite often in fact, we are always replacing them, got a stihl whipper snipper that's just over a yr or 2 old and it's got a stuffed coil by the looks of it.

Your are right in saying they often share the same coil, it's important to get the right one as if you don't you will one have trouble getting the mounting holes lined up and two you will find the timing isn't right and it will want to make the machine fire on the wrong part of the stroke (we've had a few coils lately that want to make chainsaws run in reverse - I suppose one could always put the chain on back to front and use it that way :lol:

You'll probably find the coils from china anyway - stihl has lots of parts on their equipment that's made in China now as do a lot of the others too. :unknown:

Thanks cracker...
Yes ill try internet searching again when (&if) i establish the coil is st fault.
However, i did spend some time looking & tried the part number, & the only coil i could find that continually came up were the coil for smaller machine.
Not sure if they are the same (id have thought not).

Im.just struggling for time to pull it apart now...

Anyway...thanks for your help thus far...
